Coleford Carnival of Transport

Vintage Cars, Classic Cars, Custom & Street rods, Military, Commercial & Motorcycles
13th April 2020


The Coleford Carnival of Transport takes place on the streets of Coleford in the heart of the beautiful Royal Forest of Dean on Easter Monday every year.

The Town Centre is closed so that vehicles of all types and periods can be displayed side by side. Classes of vehicles include Vintage Cars, Classic Cars, Custom & Street rods, Military, Commercial and Motorcycles. Normally in excess of 500 are displayed! 

Its free to the public to attend!

There is plenty to see and do, with not just cars, but also Club Displays, an auto jumble to find that scarce part for your cherished vehicle.

There is entertainment throughout the day, rides for the children, plenty of food outlets as well as an Art Exhibition, Craft Show and a Model Railway Exhibition.

You may want to relive your youth and find the first car you bought.  You may just want to browse the many exhibits. Whatever your interest you should be able to find it in Coleford.
